"The sheer range and quality of effects offered by SFX Machine RT is staggering.... As a creative sound design tool SFX Machine RT could be extremely valuable, as it consistently produces unexpected, interesting and usable noises and textures....There's really nothing else quite like it on the market, and its originality of design is reflected in the wide range of sounds it's capable of producing. If you're interested in doing something a little out of the ordinary, this could be just the tool to do it with."

"If you can only afford to buy one plug-in, this one's probably your best value for the money. It just does so many different things, it's very cool, it's easy to program... this is the best swiss army knife I can think of out there."

— George Leger III, utopiaparkwaymusic.com, from the Logic Audio 6 Tutorial for Virtual Training Company.

    Why SFX Machine RT?

The original version of SFX Machine quickly became the tool of choice for leading sound designers, composers and sample editors. It won Electronic Musician's Editor's Choice Award as well as a Key Buy Award from Keyboard Magazine. Our new version, SFX Machine RT, features real-time processing and adds OS X and Windows support.

SFX Machine RT supports VST and Audio Unit formats and provides full MIDI parameter control for automated preset modification, using a simple MIDI Learn system which allows new dimensions of interaction.

The Randomize button automatically adjusts the position of each of the non-volume sliders, making it easy to get an idea of the range of possibilities contained within each preset.

SFX Machine RT is like hundreds of plugins in one. (See the list of presets.) Maybe it won't be the only effects processor in your sonic arsenal, but it's an indispensable part of any balanced and nutritious audio software library. See what our users are saying!

At the heart of SFX Machine RT is a powerful modular synthesis engine. But you don't have to be an engineer to use it! The interface features the simplicity of a multi-effects box, allowing users to select and modify presets with just a few mouse clicks.
